How Much Will My Insurance Cover?
While no insurance plan will cover 100% of all procedures, having dental insurance to aid in the cost of care makes regular dental visits easier for most patients. Most insurance companies group dental procedures into three categories of coverage.
- Preventative care may include regular cleanings, x-rays, and sealants. Many, if not most, dental insurance plans cover the full cost for preventative care services.
- Basic care may include remedial procedures like extractions, fillings, root canals, and treatment for gum disease. Providers tend to cover between 70-80% of the cost.
- Major care may include bridges, inlays, and dentures. The patient will pay the greatest amount out of pocket for these services.
A visit to an emergency dentist in Chicago is likely to be categorized depending on what specific services you receive. Many providers also categorize care in terms of ‘essential’ vs. ‘non-essential’ care. You may have also noticed that cosmetic services (whitening, veneers, etc.) are not included in this list. Though cosmetic procedures can do a lot of meaningful work to help patients feel better, they are elective and not covered by dental insurance.
Deductibles and Maximums
Most dental insurance plans include deductibles and maximums. Your plan’s deductible is the minimum amount that must be paid before the provider begins paying for services. A plan’s yearly coverage maximum refers to the total amount your provider will pay out for your care.
